 - Trout Mask Replica
100
For my 100th review, I decided to challenge myself by reviewing “Trout Mask Replica,” one of the most polarizing albums ever made. I’ve had an empty document with just “100th review” for hours. I wasn’t even sure where to start. How do you review an album that actively defies every music convention that we know? How do you review an album that confuses a person even after multiple listens? Well, I tried my best, and writing this review has furthered my ... read more

Richard D. James’ Discography #39: "Girl / Boy" E.P.

This is such a cute EP! There’s three remixes of the deep cut, “Girl Boy” as well as three other tracks, so it’s pretty short but nevertheless entertaining. “Girl Boy” is a classic, and I’m glad the remixes did it justice, especially the NLS Mix which is the version that landed on “Richard D. James Album.” “Milk Man” really stood out to me because RDJ actually ... read more

Richard D. James’ Discography #38: Expert Knob Twiddlers

Before I get into the music, I just gotta say that this cover is so hilarious. I’m pretty sure they’re playing the game, Downfall, but they look super high, especially RDJ. He never fails to disappoint whenever he’s on his own covers. For a bit background, the “Mike” in Mike & Rich is Mike Paradinas, who is more commonly known as μ-Ziq, another famed producer from Warp. This collab feels like ... read more

Richard D. James’ Discography #37: Melodies From Mars

“Melodies From Mars” was an unofficial cassette that Aphex Twin gave to people from Rephlex and Warp, deeming this as a bootleg. It has since been his most popular bootleg, but it’s not really legendary or anything like that, and it’s pretty easy to find nowadays. As for the music, I can see why this was never released officially; it’s not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but most of this is just an ... read more

Richard D. James’ Discography #36: Hangable Auto Bulb EP.2

The second EP from the “Hangable Auto Bulb” project continues with the drill and bass style and pretty much sounds exactly like the first EP… except it’s even better. There’s only two tracks which is a little less than ten minutes. It may not sound like a lot, but this surprisingly has more substance than the last EP which was more than double the length. “Every Day” and “Arched ... read more

Richard D. James’ Discography #35: Hangable Auto Bulb EP

Wow! I did not expect this to be as great as this was! This is RDJ’s first stab at drill and bass, so I guess it’s not that much of a surprise that I love this because that’s the phase of his career that I return to the most. Anyways, every track here is so much fun, and I love the way they progress. The most famous song on the entire “Hangable Auto Bulb” series is “Children Talking,” and ... read more

Heya there! I just dropped a new ambient house EP and wondering if you'd be interested in checking it out and leaving some feedback? Let me know if you would like a link to it ^^

Over a year ago, I asked you and many other AOTY users what album you would want to be friends with. Welp, I decided to bring the concept back, with a sorta 'sequel' to that list and a reverse question:

If an album was personified as a person, what's one album you would avoid at all costs, whether it be cause of corniness, flat out racism or if it's simply a bad album.

Thank you for your time if you do end up responding and have a good one :).

One album per artist. I also frequently edit this list either because an album has grown on me or I’ve recently come across an album I thought was amazing.
